Multicharts and Interactive brokers

Postby robertwh » 19 Oct 2012

Hi all:
Can someone help with this:
I am using Paper Trade platform with Interactive Brokers(IB) data feed, but Multicharts is not able to connect to my IB data feed, I mean Multicharts can not plot any charts because is waiting for connection.
However When I use my Interactive Brokers real platform Multicharts can connect to my data feed and is able to plot the charts.
Do you if Multicharts support IB Paper trading?

Thanks .

Hello robertwh,

Enable Active X and Socket Clients box should be checked in IB TWS settings:
Click on Configure in main TWS window.
Click on API section. Select Settings.
Check Enable Active X and Socket Clients box.
Note: By default both in IB TWS and IB data source in QuoteManager Port (Socket port) number is 7496.
It is recommended to add 127.0.0.1 to Trusted IP Addresses.
